Q & A

Q. Does Direct IV Ozone cause Embolisms (is it dangerous)?

I am often asked this question by new patients who come to our clinic when they have no understanding of how the cardiovascular system deals with oxygen. Lay people ask the question, ‘Are you going to inject air into my veins, I have heard that air in the veins will cause an embolism, I will die, wont I?’ I usually answer by stating that hundreds of thousands of Direct Ozone (DIV) procedures are carried out per year, by doctors, and this has been done year in and year out for about 50 years. If it was dangerous you would expect at least one person to have died by now. If it was so dangerous one would think that people would be ‘dying like flies’. The fact is that there has not been one documented case of anybody dying from an embolism caused by DIV Ozone.

There are many thousands of DIV Ozone therapists around the world who administer ozone on a daily basis using this method of administration, Why are there no deaths?

Blood loves oxygen and absorbs it within 6 inches of flow. I had an interesting experience one day. A lady came to us for DIV; I inserted the needle in the elbow and noticed that her veins were translucent. I watched as the oxygen/ozone gas fed into the vein and flowed up the arm and was absorbed before it reached the shoulder. Blood is hungry for oxygen and absorbs it almost immediately. Air contains about 80% nitrogen, which the blood does not absorb. The cause of the bends when diving is nitrogen and not oxygen. The ozone pioneer and genius Basil Earl Wainwright in his ‘Embolisms and their Formation’ explains the oxygen process in the bloodstream- “To understand the process of a potential embolus (embolism) occurring in the bloodstream, one must appreciate the mechanisms involved. For example, an embolism in the blood can normally be caused by numerous processes such as surgery, severe chemistry imbalances, and accidents which can cause an artery or vein compression, dislodging damaged artery or vein tissue. “Other causes of potential embolisms are fats, the introduction of air (nitrogen), amniotic fluid released into the bloodstream primarily during pregnancy, or other foreign material. At no time has molecular oxygen ever been recorded to have caused an embolism; simply because when calculated levels of molecular oxygen are introduced into the blood via the veins, immediately conversion takes place. The hydroxyls and peroxyls are immediately absorbed by the haemoglobin of the veinilar-deoxygenated blood. All veins except the pulmonary vein carry oxygenated blood from the tissues back to the vena carva for oxygenation. “It is perfectly understandable that a doctor observing Apheresis would naturally fear the possibility of embolism. Hopefully, the following explanation will eradicate those fears since it is impossible to create an embolism using Polyatomic Oxygen (O2/O4 ozone). “The haemoglobin within each red blood cell is a special iron containing protein (globin), and is responsible for the transportation of oxygen throughout the body. The red pigment coloration (haem) obviously is responsible for the colouration of the red blood cells. There are typically six million red blood cells to every cubic millimetre of blood and each red blood cell contains 12 million iron atoms, it takes four iron atoms to transport 2. 7 million oxygen molecules. This means that each millimetre of blood can transport 17 trillion, 100 billion oxygen atoms. In addition, if the patient through controlling dietary processes has higher levels of iron, B complex, ascorbic acid, geranium and magnesium prior to treatment, then the lymph and plasma can also become significant oxygen carriers throughout the system. “The complexity of the iron atom (Fe) and its irrefutable scientific data and therapeutic results attest to the healing properties of polyatomic oxygen (ozone DIV). ”

Even if. 5 litre of ozone/oxygen per minute (not recommended) is administered by accident, in my experience the vein is unable to transport this huge quantity of gas. The vein allows the excess oxygen/ozone to escape into the surrounding tissue. The patient/doctor will soon pick up this complication and the only result will be a painful arm.
